Visibility increasingly requires multiple components such as TAPs, filtering, aggregation, replication and intelligent packet modification. Port density and scalability are now considered standard requirements; the future is to do more within each node. The GigaVUE-HC2 fabric node addresses this challenge with its modular, multi-purpose design.

Its versatility incorporates a broad spectrum of capabilities within the device including port, bypass, internal TAP modules and GigaSMART® packet manipulation options. With a combined throughput exceeding 1Tb, the node easily accommodates non-blocking port speeds of 1Gb, 10Gb and 40Gb.

The GigaVUE-HC2 node future-proofs IT, scaling as network needs evolve. It accommodates thousands of map rules and features some of the industry’s highest-density line cards, all in a compressed form factor.

Multiple nodes may be clustered together with other GigaVUE H Series devices to create a collective solution. Traffic is available to or from any connection across the cluster, scaling to thousands of ports. GigaVUE-FM provides customizable dashboards and wizards to view, configure and manage the Visibility Fabric™ from a single pane of glass.

The GigaVUE® fabric nodes work together to create an intelligent and pervasive Visibility Fabric architecture to aggregate, replicate and filter traffic flows from across broad networks to the appropriate, centralized management, monitoring or security systems.
